Saccopoo Memorial Draft Forum>RB's.

I tell you what-

I know the position is undervalued, but Pacheco is an awfully important piece of this offense now, and moving forward. He's also going to wear down fast.

I'd like to address the RB2/split time spot in this draft. Mckinnon is probably close to done, and Clyde is not an answer long-term.

Who do you like? I'm not saying first round, or even second-but by the mid rounds, I'd be looking for an all-around back to split time with Pacheco.

Id take a RB from the 4th but not earlier. We need a WR and OT, probably a DT and to be honest I'd even take a OG ahead of a RB. Lots of positions I'd be looking at before that one. I do like the look of that Bailey kid

I want a bigger back. Audric Estime is probably my favorite this year at 227. I’m assuming we won’t take a back early, if we could, it might be Trey benson. But I like Estime. He gets north and south quickly and has great acceleration. He was clocked at 20.9 mph. I like his body lean. He runs behind his pads and is not an upright runner. We’ve needed a bigger back since Kareem hunt left. Audric is big and fast and gets tough yards. I also like wright out of tn late in the draft but I want a big back. I’m intrigued with Braelon Allen also and he’s 245. I like Allen better at 235. But he runs a little more upright and I like bigger backs that play bigger. Some of these big backs dance around and it drives me crazy. Audric uses his size and power and gets tough yards and he also has the top end speed to break one.

One thing Reid used to do in Philly that he hasn't done lately is find RBs in space. It would make me fucking crazy when we had gold standard certified badass RBs and our jackass offensive coordinators would throw them passes for 1 yard, while Reid's guy was shredding defenses for 15 yards a clip.

Maybe it's Mahomes not looking at our guys because he wants to go down field, but I want someone who rapes in space. Fast as all fuck, shifty, slippery and catches everything.

I was hoping Ealy was that guy. He's obviously garbage, but that's the mold of dude I want.

I am not one for spending significant resources on the RB position, but I was watching the Jags Titans game thinking about how funny it would be if the Chiefs paid for Henry.

I think I read somewhere that the Chiefs were still facing a significantly higher percentage of light boxes, as teams played to defend against the Chiefs passing attack even as their offense has struggled. Henry would eat against light boxes, and Mahomes and the passing attack would feast if having Henry brought more defenders down into the box.

The Chiefs definitely won't/shouldn't do it, but do you think it could be as fun as I think it would be?

EDIT: Spotrac has Henry estimated as a 2 year 10m contract, damn if that were true I would actually do it, but Spotrac always wrong on these

We run a ton of draws from shotgun and it has killed us to see CEH get 2 yards on those plays. Pacheco fights harder and gets 4 on those plays routinely and I think estime, at 227, can set us up for those 2nd and 5 plays that really set the offense up better on 2nd down. He follows and sets his blocks up well.id love to see us pick estime in the 4th. Is that where yall see him going?

RB is being overlooked I think.... seems pretty clear we'll need x2 this offseason.

65/35 we will at a team friendly price.


I'll go ahead and get the local homer question out of the way - should we draft Cody Schrader in April if he's still on the board in the fourth round, or is he that flashy college back that will never amount to an NFL player?

Other than the fumbles, I like some of what I see from Braelon Allen. Being able to bring in a big back in short yardage situations that has the ability to catch a pass might help us in those 3rd and shorts that we seem to struggle with.

I watched the Sr Bowl invite show the other night and I found this guy intriguing as a prospect for the Chiefs.

First off, let's get one thing straight: Dylan Laube isn’t Christian McCaffrey. We’ve seen some lazy white-running-back comparisons out there on the internet, and if we’re playing that game, the better comparison is former New England Patriots third-down back Danny Woodhead. Now that we’ve addressed the McCaffrey thing, because it’s unfair to pin that on Laube, let’s focus on his skill set.

He’s a good runner at the FCS level, but the thing that separates him from most backs in this draft class and what earned him a Senior Bowl invite is his versatility and his prowess in the passing game. We watched some tape on Laube over the summer, and what really caught our attention was his record-setting receiving day in a “play-up” game against FBS team Central Michigan where he caught 13 passes for 297 yards. Laube is the type of versatile sub-downs back that every NFL team is looking for because he catches the ball well out of the backfield and can legitimately run detached routes from the slot.

He is better at the top of the route than most college wideouts, and he tracks and catches the ball downfield far better than most running backs. Like most small-school players, the week in Mobile will be huge for Laube, who is the first UNH player in the Senior Bowl in 36 years. Heading into the pre-draft process, Laube is more of a late-round player for most teams, but if his play-making ability from FCS tape translates against the best of the best from around college football, he should get pushed into more early-Day-3 conversations.
